Design a sign

 We’re accepting bids to design a block club sign for one of My Block, My Hood, My City’s partnered block clubs.

Our One Block At A Time program serves 25 block clubs this summer. One goal of the program is to design, build, and install a new block club sign for each club. Many block clubs have a sign that has seen decades of decay and focuses on the negative. These signs list out the rules of the block with large red “NO”.

We want to replace these with new signs that promote the value of the block, “Love, Family, Respect”. We are calling on Chicago’s design community to join this project that serves as a beacon of hope for our communities. Chosen candidates will be responsible for one design, and will receive design feedback directly from our block club leaders.
